    <span style="font-size: x-small;"><em>Ed. Note: This article originally ran in the March 2012 issue of </em>XXL<em>, where </em>XXL <em>collected 100 tracks that directly bit The Notorious B.I.G.'s lyrics on 10th anniversary of his death</em><em>. We are re-running the story as part of a week of throwback stories to commemorate the 17th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s death Sunday, March 9, 1997. Check out our other stories <a title="notorious" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/tag/biggie-week/" target="_blank">right here</a>.</em></span><br /><br />As much as hip-hop is marked by constant innovation, it's heavily reliant on borrowing. From samples to styles, the culture is entrenched in reinvention. So, too, are certain rappers’ lyrics, which are regularly regurgitated by other MCs. And no street scribe’s words have been bitten more frequently than The Notorious B.I.G.’s.<br /><br />B.I.G.-biting doesn’t discriminate. Artists from all walks of life and levels of success have done it: MCs from Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and 50 Cent to Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa and Beanie Sigel have mimicked Biggie’s verbal blueprint in their own rhymes.In honor of the 15 years since The Notorious B.I.G.’s passing, <em>XXL</em> put together a list of the 100 most-bitten Biggie lyrics of all time. Some lines are exact replicas deliberately paying homage, and some are slick tweaks and subtle acknowledgements of a job well done. But one thing they all share is the ability to keep Biggie Smalls’ memory and legacy alive. <em>—ADAM FLEISCHER</em>
